History of UW-Oshkosh

Our University of Wisconsin collection has such great images we love highlighting them. Today I'm going to focus on one of our newer collections. The History of UW-Oshkosh collection documents the evolution of this campus over time. This collection is still evolving and includes published materials, books, images, recordings and other archival materials.


The collection has great images of buildings, students and activities on campus. The image on the left is of Dempsey Hall taken in the 1930s-1940s. Today Dempsey Hall is the oldest building on campus.

But this collection is not just old shots of buildings, it also has some quirky shots of students. This image on the right shows three female students standing on a light post in front of Dempsey Hall in 1932.

This collection has tons of interesting images. From giant elephant decorations in the front yards of houses, to cheerleaders striking a pose and images of students taken all over campus, this collection is just fun to look at.

Take moment out of your busy day and check out this collection.
